Right Here, Right Now!
WelcomeThe Catholic Church in Southwest Washington is opening a new chapter in the history of our local Church by embarking on a campaign to build St. Elizabeth Ann Seton High School. Catholic schools have played a major role in Southwest Washington's history for over 150 years. Mother Joseph and the Sisters of Providence founded Providence Academy in 1856, and we have grown to four primary schools in the area. Today, we build upon the legacy of those who have gone before us as champions of Catholic education to further honor St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, foundress of Catholic schools in the United States.
"Seton Catholic, now in its seventh year, has found its footing in the Vancouver area and is energized about welcoming more students looking for an excellent Catholic secondary education close to home. Focused on development of the whole person as a disciple of Jesus Christ in the Church, Seton Catholic blends high academic standards with ministry and service opportunities that encourage students to build a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that will guide them throughout their lives. On my visits to the school, I sense the excitement among students, families, staff, faculty and leadership not only for what the school has achieved thus far, but also for the promise yet to come. I share that excitement and want to encourage and support the school in its development, and I hope you do too."
